What you'll do

My experience is about learning and enjoying the African movements in the latin sounds.
Is an understanding of body movements to the rhythms from the African roots. A crush course if you will. You will enjoy Afro Latin dance in a whole new way. It is not a Zumba class!
This dance class explores the basic steps of the Afro-Diaspora culture dance. Basic body moves to dance all the most popular music found in Latin America.
Warm up to AFRICAN music, basic steps of BACHATA, build according to the individual and/or group dynamics and move on to the SALSA beats. To spice up our accomplishments we will celebrate with SOCCA and/or DANCEHALL and to wrapp it up, we will do so with soothing REGGAE. Never sit down again while music is playing. We may participate in a a group but sometimes it can be just you and me. Now lets dance like no-one is watching!
Other things to note
This session is conducted barefoot and with comfortable clothing. In order to take place in this experience please ensure that you can perform one hour of intense workout.

I was born in Costa Rica to Jamaican and Salvadoran parents. I studied dance at the Alvin Ailey School in New York. I have been a dancer ever since. I have learned (and practice) several other dances, styles including belly dancing, flamenco, and tango. Nevertheless, my African roots are my heart and soul—they run in my blood. It is my passion to teach what I love the most. I opened the doors of Salsa Brava Rasta Bar in its beachfront location in 1992. Ever since, I have devoted my efforts and time to preserve, enforce, and teach our cultural traditions through the arts of food, music, and dance.

Wuanda is such a cool human!! She is a total powerhouse and can teach anyone to dance! We showed up for the lesson, excited and hoping the instructor would provide a good balance of “challenge” and “fun/freedom to express” and we got exactly that. Wuanda made it extremely fun to learn Afro-Latin dance and provided historical information about how the dances resonate with this particular region in the Caribbean. She encouraged us to follow the steps but most importantly to look up and out at the mirror and to feel it more than think it! She helped my partner during the salsa portion until he got it and she never gave up on him or made him feel he couldn’t do it. I loved the variety of dances she taught us and worked a variety of muscle groups. The music was fire!!! We smiled a lot and felt like it wasn’t too difficult or too easy when it came to the dance moves and the choreography. That’s exactly what’s needed to help build confidence and keep things fun and Wuanda was amazing! We ended class stretching and looking out at the ocean. It was a beautiful finish to a perfect experience. Having it at Salsa Brava made it feel really cool too like we were at a dance club even though it was 9am! Perfect time too as it wasn’t too hot just yet.

This was the highlight of our entire trip to Costa Rica! Wuanda lead us through an amazing Afro-Latin dance experience giving us an incredible history in between each section. She was patient, adjusted to the learning styles of her students, and above all else made it so much fun! Afterwords we stood around, jumped into the water at the beach, and had some amazing food!

Great dance class and a major workout! Made me interested in learning more and getting better at salsa and other styles of dance. She was also very patient with my 2 year old. Thanks Wuanda! :)
